Join us for an evening of up-close and personal interviews with these two dynamic local entrepreneurs who are leading the charge in redefining their industries from right here in Calgary.

They will be putting it all on the table for you, sharing their unique stories, insights and lessons learned in business and how they have built successful companies.

A highlight of Small Business Week, this evening will inspire, enlighten and connect local entrepreneurs, business owners and leaders of any stage of company, from early to mature, and everything in between.
